Let me introduce myself...
My name is Geert, I live in Louvain, Belgium. Born in 1973, father of 2 kids and living with Es, my new love in life.
I work with/for a bunch of nice guys/gals who do stuff they call "spatial planning and urbanism". I'm the guy who is supposed to make boring stacks of paper a little less boring by adding illustrations. Before that (and still nowadays, from time to time) I used to work as an assistent architect.
Apart from my kids and girlfriend I love boardgames (obviously), reading (scifi and fantasy), recreative motorcycling, those funny little things called microbadges and - being tired of always working with my mind (not to say I’m a boring office guy) - I recently discovered woodworking.
Our group consists of 5-6 players. Family games are usually played with my girlfriend and another couple, the more ‘difficult’ games are played by myself and 2 (sometimes 3) friends of mine. Party games are not my thing.
Concerning games I tend to live on the safe side... Meaning ratings and ranking are important to me. I’m afraid I hardly buy any new game on the market. I mostly own Eurogames but I also love games using the blocks-of-war system (usually owned by those other 2 players I mentioned before).
I’m still waiting for a game that will make Wizard Kings (the only game I rated 10) no longer my favourite. I love this game so much I was crazy enough to design 4 new armies (Imperials
, Night Elves
and Dark Cult
